I just diagnosed a nameserver failure which resulted from the system-config-bind
tool spitting out a configuration which doesn't listen on IPv6 addresses. We
should listen on all addresses by default; not just Legacy IP addresses.

I just confirmed that this bug is still in current rawhide: deleted named.conf,
ran system-config-bind, and the generated named.conf had no listen-* directives.
I confirmed with netstat that this config allows bind to listen to port 53 on
all IPv4 networks, but only on ::1 with IPv6.
Please update the status of this bug.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
